If your New Year’s resolution is to find a new job, here’s a list of some of the easiest and most desirable jobs on the planet, from Yahoo!

#1.) Being a “Mansion-Sitter”. It’s exactly what it sounds like: House-sitting for rich people. Plus, they get free room and board. You can apply for this job on the website, LuxuryHouseSitting.com.

#2.) Watching Videos of Cute Pets. Web editors at websites like CuteOverload.com spend hours combing through footage of kittens, puppies, and other baby animals. Casting agents for the Animal Planet show called “Too Cute” do the same thing.

#3.) Eating Chocolate. The food tasters at Godiva can sample up to 50 bonbons a day, but it actually requires training. And as you can imagine, it’s a hard job to get. Chocolate testers can earn up to $70,000 a year.

#4.) Watching TV. If you can type fast, you could write captions for the hearing impaired for about $25,000 a year. Also, researchers watch eight hours of TV a day for about $10 an hour at the company that does the “Nielsen Ratings” for TV shows.

#5.) Making Do-It-Yourself YouTube Videos. Videos that show people how to do simple things, like whistling and putting on make-up, can get a ton of clicks which earns you ad revenue.

#6.) Professional Sleeper. This year, a travel site in China hired people to pose as guests at hotels all over the country, to assess things such as how soft the pillows were and wi-fi strength. According to Yahoo, they can make around $1,500 a month.
